Members of Khmer Girls in Action sang, danced and acted during the 10th Annual Yellow Lounge arts and culture showcase Saturday to celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month at the Long Beach School for Adults auditorium.
They also shared stories of struggle and overcoming adversity through skits and spoken word performances in front of the more than 100 people in attendance.
“I really hope they leave inspired,” said Lian Cheun, executive director for Khmer Girls in Action. “Inspired by our young people, and really take in the stories that they’re telling.”
The show’s theme of “Celebrating our Roots, Planting a Legacy” also encouraged members to embrace their heritage through traditional song and dance.
